Groovy Greg is one wild cool guy, a veteran English mohair artist bear from Barbara-Ann Bears
Groovy Greg stands 17 inches/43 cm tall and is 11.5 inches/29 cm sitting.
Groovy Greg is a bear of the 1990s, a bear from our transition from the traditional into the wild and wonderful world of Barbara-Ann Bears, we made ten Groovy Gregs for the renowned teddy bear shop Teddy Bears of Witney's 1995 catalogue. He's a very relaxed and cool guy, he doesn't get up in the morning fretting or panicking, he just takes every day as it comes, at his own pace.
Groovy Greg was made in 1995 from beautiful English mohair (sadly this mohair is no longer available, the factory closed down many years ago). The mohair is a rich, antique gold, it has a gentle wave to it which gives Groovy Greg his rugged, slightly dishevelled charm. He has mid brown wool felt paw pads, that combine very well his mohair perfectly, dark amber glass eyes and a pert, chestnut coloured, meticulously embroidered nose. Groovy Greg is almost entirely stuffed with polyester stuffing, although his tummy is filled with plastic pellets which add a little extra weight.
Groovy Greg is a great bear, he will never criticise or judge, he'll always tell you "You look great!" "'Sit down drink some coffee, don't get stressed it isn't worth it'...just relax, everything's groovy"
Groovy Greg has been very well looked after, there are no holes or blemishes, even on his paw pads, he looks just as he did the day we made him, sadly he didn't come back to us with his swing ticket so we don't know which number of the edition of ten he is. His sewn in label has our first logo and we'll give him a new swing ticket when he leaves us. Sadly Groovy Greg outlived his owner and is now looking forward to finding a new home.
We will enclose photos with Groovy Greg including a copy of his catalogue entry and we are happy to put in a greetings card and gift tags, maybe a birthday card or one for another occasion, you can choose one from our greetings card page and let us know which card you would like.
As with all our bears Groovy Greg is not a toy, he is an adult collectable and unsuitable for children under 14.
